    Talking Misfire solved!!!

    Well it wound up being a gummed/carbon coated exhaust valve for the #4 cylinder (could not fully close), so both heads are being pulled to check the rest of the valves and then check the heads for warping and cracks, figure I have that much labor into it already might as well add a few more hours to save me the money that could be spent if anything else failed. So now as it stand have had ALL injectors pulled, inspected and cleaned. Will have new set of plugs and distributer put in as well. Top end is/will be spotless and ready for another 100,000!!

    If I would have taken it in in the first place I would have saved myself $175, and some busted knuckles, but on the other hand I would have been pissed if it was something I could have done.

    JASON,
    Yes, it is nice to finally get a pain in the butt problem fixed.Any idea why #4 got gummed up? Bad plug wire-bad spark plug, bad injector bad luck?
    Congrats
